1969 Paramount Pugnat Lugs
I have had this frame for quite awhile - don't gasp it's been professionally spread to 130 in the back and became my rain bike with Campy ergo 8 speed
triple. The chrome is in amazing condition and the fork is to - probaly need some new paint, but again it's my rain bike. I have a new Cinelli project and I am planning to move the paramount's groupo over to - it just needs an italian bottom bracket and some short reach brakes.
So here's my delima, can the paramount be set up with Nitto rounder handle bars. I bougth some 9 speed durace barend shifters and I hve some new diacomp road levers which have to be match up to some Suntour vintage long reach side pulls because that what I had to get convert from 27 inch wheels to 700 c. Or is all of this just to much hassel and I should just stick to rtoad bars because I know it will work.
The "hassel" is the adventure. Go for it!
whilst you have it apart, pour linseed oil or framesaver into the tubes to keep that nasty northwest weather from destroying it...
